Java Applications became the go-to preference of most developers because of the write-once-run-anywhere advantage it gave over other languages. And it didn’t take much time for Java to become the language for the enterprise. Consequently, most enterprises are still running legacy Java Monoliths on their infrastructure. Breaking up a monolith is not…
 
When Web Assembly was created it was supposed to be a compile target, where you could compile your favorite programming language and then execute it inside of a web browser. This made it possible for developers to choose a programming language like C++ for compute intensive applications. Fermyon is taking Web Assembly to the cloud. With Fermyon Clo…
 
If you are a company with a large pool of physical servers, and compute resources sitting in the data center, and you want to use them efficiently, one way to do that would be to virtualize them.
